Weekend Recap {tour de france}

July is one of my favorite months because of the Tour de France! This year's tour was really good! While the stages through the Pyrenees were pretty boring, things really heated up in the Alps! I was really rooting for two-time runner up Andy Schleck this year, but I would have been happy with Cadel Evans winning as well. Cadel sealed the deal during his amazing time trial in Stage 20 and totally earned the yellow jersey this year, no doubt about it! I have no doubt that Andy will wear the yellow jersey into Paris one day, probably in 2012.

I love that Frank and Andy are brothers and finished together on the podium. It was really fun watching them work together this year. And aren't the team colors so fabulous?! Leopard Trek was my favorite team for this reason alone :)

Absolutely beautiful flowers! I saw a wee bit of the TDF, but must say...I have a hard time watching sports of any kind on TV. Were I there in person....that would be a completely different story! I may even run through the riders in my bathing suit like that one lady did! NOT :)
